I am a trained, registered nurse and have specialised in caring for the elderly for nearly 25 years. I believe strongly in treating people as I would want to be treated, and I carry that through the way I manage my team and how we care for residents and support their families.
Before joining Weald Heights in October 2016, I had managed a care home with 62 rooms for a decade. I helped it to acquire an excellent reputation and long waiting list and set the standard in care in many ways. I’m aiming to achieve the same things at Weald Heights.
Care UK is a great place to work: it’s a well-respected organisation with a vision for elderly care. It also believes in properly training, rewarding and appreciating its people, and in supporting its homes to forge strong ties with their local communities. I’m looking forward to working with a skilled and passionate team to become a beacon of superb care in Sevenoaks, in Kent, and across the South East of England.Maria Covington Home Manager
